Gentle Rebel is an approximately 7 years young Bull Mastiff. A lovely, sweet fella who came into our care as an unclaimed stray, so we have no background history on him. (How you could lose this big boy is beyond me). He is a gentleman, a lovely lad who hasn’t put a foot wrong since we’ve known him. Due to his size and strength, we would only rehome him with older children, preferably teens and upwards. He has been fine with most other dogs he has met, or been introduced to on group walks with, so he could live with another dog, following successful introductions.
He has already had some basic training and will do a nice sit, give paw and down. Rebel absolutely loves a fuss, stroke, cuddle or massage, he will lean into you for as much as he can get. He is very gentle with treats and loves a rawhide bone to chew on. He enjoys going out on group walks with other dogs but he can be strong on lead to begin with, once he is over his initial excitement he does plod along quite nicely.
Larger dogs always have the kindest souls and Rebel has all that and more. I would hate for him to languish in kennels just because of his size. He may not be small and cute but he is gentle and very loving, makes you smile everyday and pulls the funniest faces, a real donut! Being a little older, he is very calm and loves to snooze in his bed after his walks and I’m sure he would settle quickly in a new home.
